Keep A Child Alive, a charity that gives anti-retroviral treatment to children with AIDS in Africa held an auction for the first iPhone, two Jawbone Bluetooth headsets, two round-trip plane tickets (domestic flights) and two V.I.P. passes to the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball. The Keep A Child Alive Black Ball will be held on October 25th in New York City and will honor the singer/philanthropist/activist Bono.

Spike Lee, the filmmaker well-known for films such as Junglefever, purchased the iPhone at Apple’s Soho store in New York City and donated it for the fund-raiser. The auction was won at 6pm on Friday, June 29th, though as of now the new owner is still anonymous.

The iPhone will get a special personalized voice mail greeting from Alicia Keys, the first Global Ambassador of Keep A Child Alive.
